    Vitamin C - High doses?

    The thing which I have noticed is that almost every recovery programme includes Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids and recommended dosage is quite high, say 3g/day. Is it really that much of benefit as I have been struggling even with all those supplements to improve my skin - Not that I am a women but my skin isnt the same like it used to be before.

    I have increased my current Vitamin C intake to 8g/day and I definitely seen some improvements, can't say it's totally to Vitamin C as I have included Vitamin E and Vitamin 5 (Panthothenic Acid - on top of my B Complex).

    Just wonder if anyone else is taking such large doses and if there are any consequences to that?

    Cheers

    The way I understand it, you should dose vitamin C to tolerance levels, ie increase in stages until the bowels become loose (cant spell dia.......) then drop back to the previous level, and you have tolerance levels.

    I have the Adrenal Fatigue book by James L Wilson, and highly recommend it, I have gained a lot of understanding from its pages.

    Do you take selenium for your thyroid ? This is a must have, and you can take this by having four Brazil nuts daily, it makes a change from pill-popping

    You are absolutely right about the book. It's a must have for us adrenal sufferers. I thought I almost knew everything about adrenals but this book is worth every penny.

    I have been feeling quite well at 8g/day. Havent tried increasing it but gonna do it once my new batch of supplements arrive

    Yes selenium is a must and I take it with my Zinc/Magnesium combination in the night along with 5-HTP. For some reason I dont like Brazil nuts but love walnuts.

    Ric

    Yes I usually buy Vitamin C etc from H&B or GNC. Now a days H&B offer 99p P&P no matter how big is the order so bought myself some Fish Oil, Vitamin C and Vitamin B5. They all on sale so you can pick up some bargains.

    Actually the book say, some people may need up to 20g/day (Dr. Peatfield said it may be up to 12g/day) so I am not very much surprised.

    Extra high dose is not good. Anything in excess is not good. So, there must be proper dose & intake of any upplement, calcium, vitamins, minerals. for this posting.
